Kaisa Melanton - Textile work and painting
(Text in Swedish)
Kaisa Melanton is one of the leading figures in Swedish textile art. Her art is rich, willful, and sometimes dramatic, often of a large format. For several years Melanton was head of the textile department at the Konstfack (Art University College of Arts, Crafts and Design) in Stockholm as well as art director at the Märta Måås-Fjetterström textile company and artistic advisor at Handarbetets Vänner (Association of Textile Art). On her 80th birthday she was entrusted the prestigious commission of designing rugs and draperies for the Stockholm Concert Hall.
In this book the author Jan Brunius presents a full portrait of “the woman and the works', richly accompanied by illustrations from Melantons production.
